Dan Bongino, a fiery political contributor for Fox News, has now reportedly left the network.
Former U.S. Secret Service agent Bongino was given an hour-long Saturday evening program on Fox in 2021 after becoming well-known for his incisive defenses of former President Trump while a regular on Fox’s prime-time shows in recent years. His final episode, per the network, aired on April 15.

For the time being, Fox said it would air a Lawrence Jones-hosted program in its place on Saturday nights, and a repeat of comedian Greg Gutfeld’s program would air this weekend only.
Bongino confirmed the news, saying that the decision was a ‘tough’ call on his part and was due to the fact that he and Fox ultimately couldn’t come to an agreement to extend his contract with the network.
